Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

Oh my god, thats what i was thinking i sould do, because people just make some people feel unwelcome, like i've seen people bullying their younger, she was just commenting an other people soon was talking about her in a innapropriate manner, was saying 10 year old shouldn't comeon this site because they're too young and so on...I believe this site should be avalible for people over five (like my small brother only 3 and can use the computer, but problem is, he dont like art, he likes "uefa champions league 2009 intro" thats a word you'll see him typing on the internet day and night in 2 secnds like MAD) And so i believe any one who can write can surely draw, and if you can draw, well you've come to the right place, and i believe you should feel welcome as long as you promise not to mention/say/type innapropriate contents! Agree?

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

I agree. Though some people might not think younger members are mature enough to rate drawings "correctly," there is really no way to "correctly" rate a drawing. It's all our pretty much the opinion of the critic, and if the critic doesn't understand the art piece, it's still their opinion.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

Thanks; it all has to do with personalities/culture. I hate getting in trouble too, even if it's no me who did something. I still feel like I'm to blame if I didn't do anything.

But of course that's all besides the point! smile Still thanks for the responses and such! smile

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

"While commenting drawings, try to explain what the artist could do better to achieve a better rating"

i am totally off with this idea and many others. how about be kind? some people dont like taking "this is good, but i think you could do better next time blah blah blah," because it does offend, sometimes, and could start arguments and hate-rates. i'd just say "be kind and nice"

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

Well, there is a difference in saying "you can do better" and "here's what you can do to improve." If someone doesn't want feedback, they'll shut of the ability of a rater to give it.

The point of RMD for most people here is to get better at drawing and one of those ways is to get others to see what you can improve upon, and so anyone whose goal is not this should shut off the feedback system and my idea shouldn't apply to their drawings, obviously.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

i like the idea of this.
i understand, but 2me the ban of chat speak is, honestly, unreasonable.
many things u say in "chat speak" just don't translate well.
for example:lol= laugh out loud

you: -insert joke-
me: oh my gosh laugh out loud

but other than that big_smile


do I smile to much? i think i smile to much.... and i'm smiling while i'm typing again. agh.here.i'll frown.just for you smile ....... whoops

Yeah, but chat speak can be misinterpreted and I really can't read it either.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

English is one of the most complicated languages on the planet, and people dilute it by getting lazy and not wanting to type out whole words and phrases.  If you want to be taken seriously or understood more clearly by some of the users here, you will have to use full words.  It looks better for you, and it shows you are willing to use your language skills to a level higher than the next person.  But, of course not everyone will even bother. xD  So sorry if I look like I am saying everyone needs to type proper.

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

Good tips... about the whole age thing, YESSS....


For instance, Cherry_Gurl will tell me in drawchat that  "I'm a stupid 10 year old" and will be mean to me and stuff.. but I dun really care anymore. o_O


Oh! About the chat talk, Im against with what shaden said. Im sorry, but we should be able to say our words the way we want to. If its hard for you to interpret some chat talk, then just ignore it. It's not our fault if its hard for you to read certain things.


Omg.... that just sounded so mean. Please dont take it mean D: Its just my opinion


Which makes me think of what Sweetlove said about how "opinions obviously arent allowed anymore" . I think thats totally true, everyone gets offended or in an argument etc., if someone tries to speak their opinion.


tongue Anyone agree with me?


If you draw me I'll give you 15 rates and 10 comments (:

Re: A few guidelines for bettering our community.

*Nods and crosses arms* I totally agree with the guidelines, (and I like talking "Proper" instead of chatspeak) the last site I used to go to didnt follow the rules to well.
and SoSweetItsScary your totally right about opinions, I told mine this other site and they blew up in my face (i was just trying to stop somthing bad from happening -_-')

And I have a quick question, is posting music videos okay? Cause i made one, but youtube wont let me post it on there, so I was hoping I could show you guys...
